I too like Gramps know the frustration of having to sit back and let the " Healing Process" run its full course
As you know it sometimes takes months for my PG sores to close and I am constantly in pain,embarrassment and depression, anxiety, emotional pain from it all
I have NOT had to go thru all the surgeries and all the misdiagnosis Gramps has thank GOD and I am truly sorry he has been put thru the Hades he has....he is spot on you DO NOT want Chronic Pain to be your friend ...WORST friend you'll ever HAVE
I DO have Chronic Pain and it is not something I would ever wish on anyone even my worst enemy .....
Lay back and let the family help you out
I know you dont want to ( at least I dont believe you do ) be a burden or think you are to anyone BUT hun you are not ...
YOU have to get better and the oly way that will happen is if you do what you are supposed to do
Grin and bear it ( I KNOW it is hard) and get yourself thru this
WE are going to be here to support you and help you anyway we possibly can .........
For at night is there a way to put your foot up and positioned so it is not bothering you as much??
Can you use a pillow or a couple of them to prop up the boot......?? Or like I said position it
I dont know if I am getting the clearest pic of what you are dealing with but I do hope you can get some relief
As for obsessing over it
Get your self a good book or like you did say read other posts and think about
Journal a bit that may help
ANYTHING to keep your mind off of it......... if just for awhile
I DO hope your supper was good and that you have had a good night out last night
VENT away ........
Take care hun
Am hoping today is looking better for you
